Game of the Year Game Day Announced, LSU vs. Bama on TV
The Fighting Tigers of LSU will take on Alabama in the game of the year Saturday, Nov. 3rd in Death Valley. The game will be televised on CBS with kickoff at 7 pm.
The Tigers are sure to be ready for revenge for Bama's BCS National Championship steal.
LSU has been practicing to make 'tiger meat" out of the Tide with a highly touted passing pro-set quarterback.
You may recall, LSU had problems in the quarterback position against Bama with Jordan Jefferson, who was great at running, but not so great at throwing.
They seemed to have strengthened the weak spot with a recognized passer in Zack Mettenberger, who can throw it long and was a top contender for the quarterback spot at Georgia in 2010.
According to the Bleacher report, LSU has five returning starters on the offensive line.
They finished second in passing efficiency in the league last year even without a passing quarterback. The whole season may very well hinge on how The Crimson Tide handles Mettenberger.
LSU led all SEC teams with seven players on the pre-season Coaches All-SEC first-team and tied Alabama for the most total All-SEC selections with 11.
The conference released a first, second and third-teams for offense, defense and specialists. The preseason All-SEC team was voted on by the 14 head coaches in the conference, and coaches were not permitted to vote for players on their own team.
LSU's first-team All-SEC players include Alex Hurst on offense, Sam Montgomery, Barkevious Mingo, Tyrann Mathieu (Honey Badger) and Eric Reid on defense and Brad Wing and and Mathieu on special teams.
The Tigers had three players listed on the second-team and one on the third-team.
Sophomore wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., junior offensive tackle Chris Faulk and senior place-kicker Drew Alleman were named to the second-team while junior running back Spencer Ware earned a spot on the third-team offense.
With this outstanding selection of players, LSU has never been more poised to take the national championship.
It would seem that Coach Les Miles has learned the importance of having a strong arm that can take it down the field passing, and we'll get to enjoy all the excitement as it culminates with the LSU-Alabama game. All LSU games can be heard on sister station, the new 1130-The Tiger. Geaux Tigers! Roll the Tide out of the number one spot.
